Explanation of the Student Emergency Fund

The Manor College Student Emergency Fund provides financial support to students who face unexpected financial hardships and need assistance with academic related expenses. Examples of unexpected financial emergencies include but are not limited to, a house fire, death in the family, unforeseen loss of employment, and an unexpected medical incident.
